A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has denied the bail application filed by Omoyele Sowore through his counsel, Femi Falana, SAN.
Sowore, the publisher of SahraReporters online media and convener of #RevolutionNow protest, is being prosecuted for treason and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.
The presiding judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu said Sowore’s bail can only be reduced to N50 million while his co-defendant, Bakare’s should be reduced to N20 million.
The judge said she found it difficult to believe a man of Sowore’s pedigree does not have anyone to deposit N50 million.
The case was adjourned until November 6 and 7.
